Blinken: US to defend S. Korea with 'full range of capabilities'

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken (pictured right) said the US remains committed to defending South Korea "using the full range of capabilities, including nuclear, conventional, and missile defense capabilities." Speaking at a press conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin (left), Blinken added that the US and South Korea will increase their trilateral security cooperation with Japan in order to counter threats such as North Korea's "unlawful and reckless missile launches."

Blinken said he signed an agreement with Park to advance the two countries' ties in the fields of science and technology. He said the deal will expand the scope of bilateral cooperation "both in areas that we’ve long worked together on like space but also in emerging fields like biotechnology, quantum, artificial intelligence."
